They say if you stop looking for love, it’ll come when you least expect it. The adage holds true in beauty, too: We gave up on our long, unsuccessful quest for the perfect nude lipstick— and then a makeup artist painted Giorgio Armani Rouge D’Armani Lipstick in 103 on our pout. It was love at first swipe. The medium-coverage, moisturizing bullet is the perfect balance between beige and rose: It’s not so neutral that we look washed out, yet it’s a far cry from bubblegum pink. The luxurious, creamy texture blends seamlessly into our natural lip color, so we don’t need a mirror to apply. And the sleek case has a fun magnetic closure, making us even more inclined to whip it out.

Nude lipsticks usually fall into one of two categories: Too light and concealer-like, or so sheer that your own lip color shows through and the pigment disappears. We’ve found a happy medium in Jouer Hydrating Lipstick in Dusty, a true nude balanced with just enough pink so lips look neutral but not chalky. The hue is opaque, yet still feels creamy and soft on lips. It’s perfect for when you want your eye makeup to stand out or are looking for an easy, natural look.
